Church Member Opens New
Pharmacy in Carrollton
Exciting news! Someone within our church
family is opening a new business in Carrollton. Jodi Ahnefeld has just
opened Jodi's Family Pharmacy located at 1004 N Hwy 65 (across from
McDonald's). While the new pharmacy is already open, doing business and
filling prescriptions, the formal Grand Opening will take place in the spring
after the driveway is paved and will include food and prizes! Jodi and
her team will provide high quality, efficient pharmacy services with
personalized attention. Find out more on their new
Facebook page. Or call them at 660-542-0050.
Hopefully, we will not need to cancel
worship or Sunday School this winter due to snow. We will only cancel
events as a last resort and when it becomes unsafe to get to church.
However, when it is necessary to cancel worship we will take several steps to
get the word out. First, it will be posted on the church website (www.crltn-umc.org).
Look for the cancellation icon at the bottom of the homepage. Second, it
will be announced on the local radio station. Plus, an email will also be
sent to regular attendees for whom we have an e-mail address.
The March-April 2019 issue of the Upper
Room devotional magazine is now available. Pick up a copy at the back of
the sanctuary or on the information table in the hallway. As always, we
have both regular and large print versions.
